Hi Neil
I found quite a bit on Henry Woodcock on Ancestry. If you would like me to look for any information, please do you know his date of birth, if he married, what area he lived or was born in etc, and I will gladly look for you.

Many thanks.

Is there anyone out there researching the JOHNSON family originally from Eynsford/Otford, Kent 1800's and WHITEHEAD family from Bermondsey/Southwark, same period.

If so, would be grateful to hear.

Alan Greveson kindly helped me with some information about my grandfather, Edward Richard Borthwick (RFA T 805970 Gnr). Since then I found a record of one of his woundings dated 25/6/1918. It states that he was transferred from the 64th Field Ambulance to No. 30 Ambulance Train. His regiment was the RFA, 122nd Brigade, C Battery 38th Division.
I have tried to find some information about where this might have taken place but without any luck. Perhaps someone on the forum with a knowledge of either the RFA or RAMC may be able to help.
Many thanks,

Hi, I am trying to find out a little more about my grandfather Ralph Houghton. He was a gunner with 66 Company Royal Garrison Artillery in Port Royal, Jamaica. The 1911 census shows him as a 24 year old single man. Is there any other information on my grandfather please?

Such a shame Alan no longer on this site he has helped me so much over the years. Can anyone help me on this please. When my mother died she left me a few bits of which one was a Medal which i cant find out much about it. This person is not even on my Tree but he must be part of the Family otherwise why would she have had it. I should explain her maiden name was Bartlett and she married a Nicholls. This brown Medal says The Great War for civilisation 1914-1919 on the edge of the coin it says :
G S 20486 Pte W Nicholls R. Fus. he must have belonged to my family but with whom ???? can anybody help me please.
